Executive Secretary Eduardo Ermita on Friday said that the announced retake of the June 2006 Nurse Licensure Examination has been postponed pending the decision of the Court of Appeals (CA) on the case filed by the University of Sto. Tomas (UST) College of Nursing regarding the oath taking of successful examinees in the June 2006 Nurse Licensure Examinations.

The decision came after PRC officials informed Labor Secretary Arturo Brion that details such as who should retake the exams and whether it will be a full or partial retake will depend on the Court of Appeals decision.

"We could ask the National Government to subsidize the retake of the 2006 nursing board exam but as of now I cannot really commit because I am not in a position to say that because of the pending petition filed in the Court of Appeals," said Brion.
